Call for Fellowship proposals beginning September 1, 2015
The Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) is pleased to announce expansion of the Teaching Fellows Program.
Applications are invited for a three-year teaching fellowship, commencing September 1, 2015, on any of the following four themes:
- Technology-enabled learning
- Curriculum innovation and experiential learning
- International education and global learning
- Interdisciplinary learning
Full time Western Faculty members from the following areas are invited to apply:
- ARTS AND HUMANITIES
- INFORMATION AND MEDIA STUDIES
- DON WRIGHT FACULTY OF MUSIC
In its Strategic Mandate Agreement (2012) Western affirmed its commitment to student success and student focused teaching and learning as part of the best student experience by providing funding to create the Teaching Fellows Program. The goal of the program is to enhance teaching innovation and teaching quality at Western by bringing together a cohort of outstanding Teaching Fellows – faculty members who will provide educational leadership, perform research on teaching, and disseminate the knowledge they acquire to the larger university community and beyond.
The long term vision for the initiative is to have one Teaching Fellow in each of the Faculties. In 2014, five Fellows were appointed to provide educational leadership and initiate and coordinate Faculty-specific programming and research around the theme of technology-enabled learning:
- Dr. Dan Belliveau – Faculty of Health Sciences
- Dr. Sarah McLean – Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry
- Dr. Peter Ferguson – Faculty of Social Science
- Dr. Bethany White - Faculty of Science
- Dr. George Gadanidis - Faculty of Education
Please see the TSC’s Teaching Fellows page for more information about the projects of our current Fellows.
We are seeking up to five additional Teaching Fellows who will be selected competitively to work collaboratively with the Teaching Support Centre (TSC) and their Faculties. Since each Faculty may be represented by only one Fellow per 3-year term of the award, faculty members from Health Sciences, the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, Social Science, Science and Education are ineligible to apply to this call.
The themes of this Teaching Fellows Program competition are: technology-enabled learning, curriculum innovation and experiential learning, international education and global learning, and interdisciplinary learning experience.
